Jewelry box #9: part 9

10-04-2015 04:20 AM by Kiwib0y | 6 comments »

Hi All, After the arduous task of sanding I have finally got the jewelry box to the stage I always dread WHAT finish to apply. Now I have given the box the first sand using 100 grit paper I better think about filling the pores of the grain to achieve a flat finish so the grain is not visible. So I think I can do 2 things, 1st is to ask google or 2nd ask the readers here at LJ that read this blog for their suggestions which are always helpful and are always taken into considera...

Assembly Table #2: Downdraft insert

10-04-2015 12:24 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Saw a cool idea on Stumpy Nubs YouTube. A downdraft table imbedded into another table. I think that will make a great addition to my assembly table. I think I can cut out a section to add the downdraft table and a piece of Masonite to cover the holds when not needed to make a flush surface. Floated the idea with Drew (Rock-n-H Woodshop) we’ll see what he has to say. He built a better version assembly bench not tool long ago. Already working on how-to build a new fixture to inser...

Shop stuff #4: Dealing with rust on iron

10-03-2015 05:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s that time of year again and it seems the question of how to deal with rust on the iron tops of machinery come up in all the forums about now. In response to this I make a quick video of how I deal with it. This is not the only way to do it, but it is inexpensive and works. I hope this is helpful, it is a pretty quick process.

Tone Wood List - Persimmon?

10-03-2015 03:28 PM by ppworkshop | 1 comment »

Before I started on the Persimmon Woodblock Percussion Instrument project, I did some research on the tone of persimmon wood. I had never made an instrument of any kind and hadn’t ever heard of persimmon being used, but what I found was encouraging. Here is a link I found to a long list of wood types and some notes about their tone. I was going to use the persimmon either way, but I did find the information in the list interesting.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #57: Back in the Workshop!

10-03-2015 01:13 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

Having spent a few months doing nother but maintenance , I now have time to spend back in the workshop, so the other day, I decided it was time to get a simple project out of the way, which would help a family member. One of my dogs is a rescue dog, he was abused as a Pup and as a result his jaw is deformed, making it difficult for him to eat, he pushes his bowl all over the floor trying to get his food, so he needed a dog table, something to stop his bowl moving, and raise it high enough ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #56: Bandsaw Guide

10-03-2015 12:52 PM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

My Bandsaw is a commercial model made locally here in Colombia, as many of the commercial tools are: I have always had a problem with drift, and not just a millimetre or two, more like an inch or two! I spent hours trying to correct this, and in the end gave up, marking a line on the saw table so I knew in which direction to cut. However this was not ideal, and I was finding myself not using the saw, which was ridiculous, the fault I believed was that there was no lower guide, I con...

Works in Progress #1: Little Help, Please?

10-03-2015 02:05 AM by Mark Wilson | 21 comments »

Here’s a case where I don’t know what to do with myself. I decided this afternoon that, rather than setting out to make something astounding, I’d just put a piece of wood on the lathe and make something. So, I grabbed a Hackberry turning blank, 4” X 4”, tried to figure out a way to turn it in the fashion of a tricorn, decided that wasn’t a good idea, and mounted it the normal way between centers.Hackberry is a funny wood. Those dark lines that make it so i...
